Hopes Pinned On Walt Disney, After Netflix Streams Hugely Disappointing Subscriber Numbers

By Craig Jones

Walt Disney Co’s (NYSE:DIS) earnings call, scheduled for after the closing bell on Wednesday, is in focus. Investors are pinning their hopes on Disney, after Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX) reported its first subscriber loss in over a decade in April.

On CNBC's "Options Action," Mike Khouw of Optimize Advisors said that the stock is trading about 1.4 times its average daily volume, with calls outpacing puts.

“Right now the options market is implying a move of more than 9% by the end of the week, after they report,” he added.

The buyers of these calls are betting that the stock gains at least 14% by September, he said.

Disney shares were trading 1.18% higher during Wednesday's pre-market session at $108.95.
